Over the past few months I’ve been making the conscious effort to get my family to eat a little healthier. We’ve gotten rid of fatty snacks and replaced them with more fruits and raw veggies. We’ve replaced all sugary juices with either water or all natural beverages; and we’re doing our best to avoid taking in empty calories… but it’s the holidays.
Delicious Christmas confections abound. Yummy libations, buttery breads, and sweet treats are all around; and unfortunately, yours truly has a killer sweet tooth. I personally don’t feel like my holiday is complete without a few helpings of my auntie’s apple pie… with a scoop (or two) of ice cream of course. Staying on track with all of that “healthing” is downright difficult during this time of year.
That’s why I was so excited when Sara Lee® gave me the opportunity to try a few of their Delightful Breads. With all of the leftover turkey from Thanksgiving and the leftover ham that I’m sure I’ll have from Christmas I was relieved to find a healthier alternative to the bread that I usually get for my sandwiches.
Your average slice of white bread has about 75 calories. In comparison, Sara Lee® Delightful Breads has only 45 calories per slice. That’s a calorie savings of around 40% per sandwich! How awesome is that?! The Delightful breads are also heart-healthy and provide an excellent source of fiber in each serving (2 slices). There are no artificial colors or flavors, and no high fructose corn syrup.
Those facts were enough for me to have made Sara Lee® Delightful Breads my go-to bread option for when I make my favorite sandwiches. Not to mention the fact that the Breads are absolutely delicious.
Back to my favorite sandwich though – During my time transitioning my family to a healthier lifestyle, I discovered a sandwich that’s healthy AND delicious. The family and I just can’t get enough of it. It’s made with turkey, veggies, and hummus making it a yummy and nutritious treat that I just have to share.
Make the sandwich using your favorite Sara Lee® Delightful Bread flavor. There’s Whole Wheat (made with real honey), Healthy Multi-Grain and Wheat; and the newest addition: Oatmeal.
